Mayweather vs McGregor weigh-in scheduled to start at 6pm ET.
We're just one day away from the much anticipated super welterweight fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor - the only thing that's left is for the two fighters to weigh-in.
Mayweather and McGregor will have to meet the required weight limit of 154 lbs, and Floyd seems to think his opponent is going to have a difficult time meeting the mark. In a video posted by Fight Hype earlier this week, the undefeated boxing legend estimated that Conor was "extremely heavy right" and still had at least 10 pounds to cut before the weigh in.
Per Fight Hype,
"I don't think he's gonna make the weight," Mayweather said. "Even if he does make the weight, that's even better, but if he doesn't make the weight, we're still gonna fight. But it's gonna be a heavy fine. Gimme that money."
"Conor McGregor is extremely heavy right now...extremely heavy...he's still got 10 pounds to go...get that extra money...get them extra millions ready...somebody gotta pay a fine...a true champion is disciplined and very reasonable,"
"Like I said before, a true champion is disciplined," he added. "And very responsible. But we'll see."
Experts believe the 154-pound weight limit, as well as the use of 8-ounce gloves favors the underdog, Conor McGregor. The UFC champ is of course extremely confident in his own abilities and has been predicting a knockout within the first two rounds or possibly sooner, like, 10 seconds after the opening bell.
